Monday night the Utah Jazz faced what is probably the biggest challenge they have faced this year. Trailing the Golden State Warriors in their series 0-3 they are looking at elimination that a loss will bring. The Jazz had their chance in game 3 in Salt Lake City when they caught the Warriors in a really off night. That game might prove to be the only chance the Jazz really had to win against Golden State. The Warriors will not come out in game 4 playing the way they did in game 3. In a 4-0 sweep for the Warriors.

The first quarter was the Warriors at their best, playing free and easy with everything going their way. They led going into the second quarter 39-17. The Splash brothers were taking command of this game.

The Jazz opened the second quarter with an 8-0 run to get back into this game 41-25. Utah was able to pull within ten points when it all came crashing down on them and Golden State started taking back an 18 point lead. The Jazz refused to back down and at the half the Warriors led 60-52. Utah was well within striking distance.

The Warriors had to find the fire that they started this game out with in the third quarter. By quarters end Golden State had indeed found it and led 93-79.

The Warriors were one quarter away from a clean sweep and the Jazz were on the brink of elimination.With four minutes left on the clock it was pretty much written. The Warriors couldn’t miss and Utah couldn’t buy a basket. Trailing by 26 points, the Jazz were going to be swept by the Golden State Warriors who would go on to the conference finals. It was just another blow-out for for the dominating Warriors. Curry would finish the game with 30 points. Thompson, Durant and Green would finish with double digits. Bench player JaVale McGee who is having an outstanding playoff had 12 points. The final was 121-95.

“We’ve got a good thing going and we’re playing well,” said Steph Curry after the game. “Yeah we haven’t lost but you can learn things through winning.”
